The staff at The Local House are wonderful! The food was delicious. We had shrimp, hummus with pita and then Branzino for the main entry, which we shared. The wine was lovely as well.

Came here for brunch and was quite surprised. The key lime French toast with coconut cream was very good. I've never had citrus flavored French toast before. The burger here is very good as well. Mimosas area must! Service was wonderful. Will be back.

We went out for a coffee and ended up drinking a bottle of a great tasting Italian Prosecco that actually was dry. The staff let us taste the house wine (way to sweet). Very friendly staff and a lovely interior.

Yeah so most of the restaurants on the main strip of Ocean Drive are a giant rip-off, so this was a pleasant and fairly-priced breath of fresh air! Drinks that were good and didn't cost an arm and a leg! Food that was recently cooked!...More

Seafood-centric eatery nestled in the boutique hotel Sense Beach House. The place to find locals during weekend brunch and enjoying happy hour during weekday afternoons. Don't like seafood? Don't runaway! We have something for everyone.
